2011 was a year of growth, patience and expanding myself in ways I didn't know I could. I cannot believe how much I have learned in 12 months. From my first import, writing me first invoice, my first shipment, lifestyle video, press, trunk show, production, factory visit, showroom, and retail delivery plus many more...
To think back at where I was a year from today, I have so much to be thankful for AND so much to look forward too! If next year is anything like last, then it will be a helluva ride and I can't wait!!

Happy New Year! I wish you the best of everything life has to offer in 2012. xx

styling kendall k.

Here are a few shots from the recent photo shoot with my friend, Ashley. Just a few styling ideas on how you can keep the kendall k. Fall styles relevant, as well as transition your Spring pieces into Fall.

We love the "Evelyn" tie neck blouse from the Fall collection, tucked into wide leg denim and paired back to leopard!
You can layer the "Heather" blouse from Spring under a sweater vest shown here, or a long sleeve v neck for extra warmth! Comes in Bright purple/ ivory/ blush (in photo)
shown on our Facebook page: The key to wearing the "Charlotte" from Spring is LAYERS! So lady-like.
In addition to tights and boots, I also wear my "Josephine" lace tunic from Fall with wide leg denim trousers and lots of pearls.

HUGE New Year's Sale going on NOW!!

the Haute Look process

The Haute Look sale ended this last Monday and today I'm delivering the goods to the warehouse.

The process of a weekend sale actually takes about a month to coordinate. First I send samples and inventory, this happened in the beginning of November. they have many meetings to discuss and then get me the final selection. Then I'll freeze my inventory. When the sale is over, I receive a PO from Haute Look of everything that sold during the sale. I then label, and pack up each style in their respected boxes, which are also labeled. The process is a tedious one but worth it! Now in order to save money on shipping, I'm delivering the good myself. Ha! bet they have never had a Prius pull up to the loading dock before!

tonight, I'm celebrating with my boo. Wine and The Help! Has anyone seen it? Was it as good as the book?!

moon art

My friend Ashley sent these to me yesterday! I know that this has been done before, but I can never get enough of these photos. It's lovely to see something so gigantic and unattainable become part of life.

"behind the scenes"- Spring 12

Wow, words cannot even express to you how well the Spring 12 video shoot went this last Saturday. The early morning clouds opened up, we shot all outfits needed, finished 1/2 hour early and we had a BLAST doing it. It's amazing the magic that can happen when everyone is synced creatively. A GIGANTIC thanks again to the videographer, Austin Hendrix, the gorgeouso model, Alexis Roohani and the Set-design/photographer/right hand woman, Jenika Kurtz. I can't wait to see the finished product!

I could definitely see one of these illustrations from Don Oehl hanging in my living room. I would take any of these, no problem.

This day only comes once a lifetime. I hope you are all at the right place a the right time. Are you superstitious?

When you read this, I will be on a plane flying over the Pacific. I'm on my way to China! and it really couldn't come at a more perfect time. I'm in a creative RUT, and I'm hoping that I will become inspired walking through the fabric and trim markets. What's even better? The fact that one of my dearest friends is coming with me :)

Here are a few photos from my last trip...

Have a great week friends.

The Portland Collection

Pendelton is one of the oldest clothing manufacturers in the United States. Still a family owned business (which you don't see very often today), they started the wool company in Pendelton Oregon. Fast forward over a 100 years and they have successfully reinvented themselves again! With the new Portland Collection (So Cute) as well as a collaboration with Opening Ceremony, this company is showing no signs of slowing down. Inspirational really.

Loving the red stripe down the boots!

"Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future." ~ Audrey Hepburn
